View Full Version : [ubuntu] Share external ntfs drive

November 24th, 2009, 04:16 PM

I am using ubuntu 9.10 and I have a problem with samba. I made many search about it in this forum and in google as well, but everything I tried didn't work.
I want to view external ntfs hard drive via wireless that connect to the ubuntu machine in windows xp & windows vista. (I want to enable read only without write privilege).
after installation (clean install, not upgrade) everything work well. the problem started with the samba upgrade I've got in the update manager. after the upgrade I am able to see the shared folder in windows but I cant read its content.
the search point to that it may connected to the permissions of the drive.
the permission of the drive for others is none. I tried to change those permission as user & as root with nautilus but I can't do it.

please help.

thank you.
